Well, the ideal dimensions for your design will depend on what you want to do - if you're going to use it as a Facebook cover, cover the entire background with the poster.

Whether it's going to be shown digitally at all, or printed!

Step 1: Log in to your Picmaker account.

Step 2: When you land in the dashboard. There are many different types of design categories to choose from when designing a poster. Be sure to choose the size that will best fit your needs.

Step 3: Each design category has different dimension. If you need a collage design for social media, the dimension would be 1080x1080 pixels for Instagram, 940x788 for Facebook, and 1024x512 for Twitter.....and so on.

Step 4 : Now that you've selected a design category, say for example a Youtube Thumbnail, pick a template for that category from our vast template library which can be sorted through by size, layout, color and theme.

There are thousands of templates to choose from on Picmaker!

Step 4: We have thousands of ready-made templates to get the perfect design for your project. All you need to do is drag and drop images, videos, text, shapes and icons of your choice. We’ve also got tons more of our own free templates that are both simple and complex, with just about any type of template that you would ever need.

Step 5: Now, just share your design with other collaborators, or simply download them to your device.

With Picmaker, you don't need to worry about remembering all the ideal dimensions. All that you've got to do is pick a design category of your choice, and Picmaker will take care of the dimensions!
